Elks Building

-A A +A
1906. North side of 2nd between Des Moines and Prospect streets

Below the elaborate corbeling of the building's cornice, on the second floor, is a band of vertical windows that have been filled in with glass brick. Though the large windows on each side of the entrance have been replaced with metal-framed units, their leaded glass lunettes remain.
